Few days since the first acts of vandalism appeared on the property of Church of Mystra Halron makes his way to Sorcerous Sundries during daylight. Those that might catch him outside the church would note a faster pace than ususal and thoughtful expression evident on his face. Inside the store he converses with Halbazzer of the recent events a moment, before ordering an unsual amount of his usual supply of parchment and other materials for porpuse of research. Amount is evident to last a longer time.

The green robed wizard would make his way back to the temple to drop by his supply to the private quarters and again head outside. This time to enter the Blade and Stars Inn. There he would order a supply of food and drink from Hester the Innkeeper to be delivered to the temple next door. He would leave the inn with a bought crate of white wine and disappear to the depths of the temple.

After dark those with the ability to see the invisible and be present at the right time might catch the wizard taking one or more short routes around the property. He stops to inspect the walls and surroundings cloaked with his invisibility spell. Should he be companied by his brethren he would cast the concealing spell on them aswell. After the route he would disappear inside the temple and only emerge on pressing errand or business, but remain in the city or the outskirt for now.

As he walks swiftly down the streets the air about him is kicking wildly about stirring up the dust leaves and random bits of parchment that are strewn about the dirty city streets. His mind is set on a certain place in the Noble district the Shelf of Many Books. Each step hits the pavement with purpose until he comes upon the bookstore.

The door creaks open as a brief wash of air enters the store when Danny enters. He gives a small half smile best he can with so much on his mind. A brief conversation with the proprietress in which Danny explains he is looking for some books concerning knowledge on the Hells, Devils that reside there, the summoning, binding and banishing of devils. He also mentions he is looking for specific information on Mammon and Mephistopheles and their cults as well. Understanding the odd nature of his request Danny then promptly pays the store in gold bars however many she would request to keep this quiet for now.

In the late afternoon, Mi-Le, a bespectacled monk of the Old Order, takes a seat on the steps leading up the platform in the East Gate District. He sits quietly for a while, watching people pass by, noticing those who stop to pay attention, and exchanging pleasantries with those who greet him.

As the sun begins to set, the monk publicly addresses those who are present. His voice is gentle but clear, full of tranquil confidence.

"By now, many of you have perhaps heard of last month's graffiti on the temples: 'The Gods Have Failed.' Some of you who have experienced suffering recently might even agree with the message.

"You might know that as a monk of the Old Order, I do not worship the gods. The Old Order did worship a god once, in ancient times. But that god died long long ago, and so we had to fend for ourselves. So perhaps more than anyone, a monk of the Old Order can understand the sentiment behind the message 'The Gods Have Failed.' Sometimes it seems that way, doesn't it?

"So what's the alternative? If the gods have failed, what do we do? Well, my monastery teaches self-reliance. Ultimately, we are responsible for ourselves. No one can purify us or corrupt us except ourselves, our own choices. We, and we alone, determine what we allow to influence us. We can choose what we surround ourselves with, what we pay attention to and value. If one friend encourages us to do good deeds while another friend tells us to be wicked, only we can decide who we will listen to. So do we surround ourselves with good friends and positive influences? Or will we spend time with people who encourage our bad habits?

"My teacher once said that admirable friendship, admirable companionship, admirable camaraderie is the whole of the holy life. When a monk has admirable people as friends, companions, and comrades, he can be expected to develop and pursue the Way. So we must choose our friends wisely. With this in mind, I would encourage us all to take another look at the gods. As a monk of the Old Order, I cannot say that the gods are perfect and eternal; surely they are not. But a self-reliant person who chooses his influences wisely should consider the value of the gods. Because the gods can be our greatest teachers, our best friends, the finest examples of the values which we hold dear.

"Those of you who suffer daily, who wonder when your trials will end, look to Ilmater and His followers for an example of unyielding resilience. In Ilmater's temple you will find those who will share your burdens. Those who seek the strength to protect family and friends, look to Helm and His followers for the discipline and resolve you will need to stand against the cruelties of the world. Those who are heartbroken, seek Sune and learn about true selfless love from Her followers. Those who have had enough of the violence and hatred in the world, cast aside your weapons and seek Eldath in the silence of a peaceful glade.

"Think back to the people who have been true friends do you. You might find that a true friend does not try to stoke your fears and resentment. A true friend encourages your noble qualities and helps you become a better person.

"I offer these words for your contemplation. Go in peace, friends."


The monk stands and bows to anyone who is listening. He then departs quietly.

((Diplomacy check: 35 + 6 = 41))

Danny bursts through the door to the Gond temple and quickly he locates Peter Pike and saunters up to him with a smile. He greets Peter and explains he is from the Darius Trading Company and that he was here on official business for Lord Luke Darius himself of Baldur's Gate. He spends the next few hours talking extensively with Peter about how alchemical silver weapons are made and what materials are needed to do so. He then asks Peter what the cost of getting a massive order together might be and how long it would take for such weapons to be made.

Danny stops back in to the Shelf of Many Books and is seen having a conversation with the shopkeeper again what they were talking about only he and the keeper know.

((Originally posted: viewtopic.php?p=815991#p815991 .))

Malign Ashmeddai is seen at the Temple of Ilmater. The tiefling looks slightly uncomfortable to be there, but he is seen talking to priests there about two things. First, Malign asks about the black oozes. (For reference, see: viewtopic.php?p=814879#p814879 .)
"I was told about the oozes by another adventurer. And I am nay an expert on the behavior of oozes... but it does seem odd that such an event would occur. It can nay be coincidence, aye? 'What power is behind this?' is what I want to know."

The 'magi' also asks about the orphanage near the Temple. He donates 1,000 gold to the orphan's care, in what seems like an uncharacteristic display of charity.
"My childhood in Thay was quite harsh. I would nay see these children's lives be so."


After giving his donation, the tiefling leaves the Temple. He looks both relieved and intrigued. Malign heads towards the Shelf of Many Books, to continue his research...

Danny leaves the confines of the Minstrel's Muse and with a skip in his step he makes his way to the Elfsong tavern and over the course of the next few days also to the Friendly Arms Inn. At each establishment he speaks with the owners attempting to book each as a venue for some type of upcoming traveling minstrel's show. Those who listen closely hear one name of import mentioned in the conversation that of Lord Luke Darius himself was inquiring to each venue. At the Elfsong Danny makes it clear they do not intend to book the interior of the tavern but the outside patio for performance.
